Safest amount of travel on 09 M4 Rockhopper frame?

Ive got a reba shox with 120mm of travel. Ive been trying to look at specs for the frame but havent came up with anything concrete. All ive found was what fork the bike comes with stock, which is always a 100mm travel fork.. I know putting a somewhat longer travel fork will change the geo a little, but that dosent really concern me, and i dont plan of ever bottoming out. Im just wounding if there are any other dangers..such as the tire hitting my frame..causing an endo at the worst time. Any thoughts?
